A team of REALTORS and Affiliate members from the locally based Southern Adirondack REALTORS membership organization provided their expertise, muscle and energy to recently assist the Habitat for Humanity of Northern Saratoga, Warren and Washington County in their project build of a Habitat home in Lake George. On hand representing the Southern Adirondack REALTORS’s Community Outreach Committee were; (left to right) Andrew Kopf (Hunt ERA, Glens Falls), Jennifer Haskins (The Post Star Newspaper), Michelle David (Hunt ERA, Glens Falls), Catherine McDonough (Hunt ERA) event coordinator, Carrie McComsey (Trustco Bank, Warrensburg Branch) and Kristine Fisher (Hunt ERA, Glens Falls). Many thanks to these wonderful volunteers and special thank you to Trustco Bank who also provided lunch for our hungry helpers!
SAR’s Community Outreach committee provides many forms of support and outreach throughout the year. This committee is also responsible for organizing a huge “REALTORS make a difference day” each spring at the Double H Ranch for Kids where nearly two dozen volunteers spend the entire morning assisting ranch staff with preparations to open the camp. The volunteers also coordinate blood drives, food drives and an annual Adopt-a-Family holiday program that involves nearly a quarter of the 575 member non profit association in purchasing “wish list” items for multiple needy families all over their service area of Warren and northern Washington Counties.
Affiliate members engage directly with REALTOR members to make this type of outreach possible while also providing some excellent networking and comaraderie in the process. Affiliate members are those businesses who support the Real Estate Industry through their services and products. Everything from Mortgage Companies and Lawyers to Home Inspectors and Landscapers participate in the Southern Adirondack REALTORS association membership.
